It is interesting that the Assisted Suicide Bill is supported by The Guardian. The very same newspaper which cries over pictures of dead children on a Turkish beach is prepared to support the killing of the sick, old, infirm and disabled.
I must declare an interest. I suffer from Parkinson's and have seen my physical condition worsen over the last decade. But in the event of this Bill becoming law, how long would I be allowed to live? How long until the Social Workers whispered in my ears "You won't have much of a life, won't you be better off dead?"
This Bill is the start of a slippery slope.
The Three Tameside Labour MP's have promised to vote against the Bill, but we must not be complacent, Keep pestering your MPs to ensure they realise the depth of feeling on this matter.
